* Which form will I use?

The published fees above are typical and are all inclusive; federal plus one state tax return, electronic filing and direct deposit.    We are so confident our fees are lower than the "chain stores" we offer a 100% guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with our services, you are under no obligation to pay.

While no two tax returns are exactly the same, we know how important costs are to you in selecting a tax professional..   Therefore we publish fees for our basic returns so that you have a general idea of the costs BEFORE making your appointment.  Increased complexity and number of forms will determine ACTUAL costs for each return.

** IRS/STATE letters are typically a reply to a taxing authority inquiry.  The cost is typically a result of the amount of time required to research the topic / generate the letter, and the year / agency in question.


NOTE:  Fees listed below include Federal return preparation, one State return preparation, electronic filing, and direct deposit.
